Transfer to Teriberka village, 130 km, 3 hours drive to the shores of the Arctic Ocean. It is the only place in Russia where you can reach the northern ocean by road.
Teriberka is one of the oldest settlements at Kola peninsula, founded in XVIth century as a fishermen village at the shores of cold Barents sea. Fascinating Arctic nature is the biggest treasure, though there is a decent set of historical and cultural highlights to visit. Apart from arctic flora and fauna and splendid northern landscapes, appearance in the famous Russian movie “Leviathan” have started to attract more and more visitors. If you happen to be there on Xmas day, we will have a glass of champagne at the shores of the Northern Ocean!
Teriberka, being now the most popular village in Russia, sets the purest sample of cognitive dissonance: numerous visitors from Moscow and St Petersburg, travelling by expensive Land Cruises and other luxury vans, rising number of international travellers…coming to the semi-abandoned village with the old collapsing houses and the average salary of 150 USD per month.
What else to do and see at Teriberka?
Old wooden ships cemetery, beautiful sand beaches, abandoned historical part of the village, waterfall, battery of coastal defense, observation posts and strengthening of WWII. Please note, that due to bad road conditions and polar night, we depart not later that at 4 PM. For custom overnight stays, please inquire.
Here in Teriberka, you will find yourself in the lost world, on the shores of the Arctic Ocean. We use snowmobiles to reach such highlights as the cemetery of abandoned ships and other attractions. However, life goes on and local cafes are now serving decent meals to international travelers. You can taste fresh crab, sea scallops, sea urchins, and seasonal catch of the day (weather permitting). Return to your hotel.
